to comment, "the washington post" columnist matt miller, cnbc contributor and former new hampshire senator judd gregg. town hall.com political director guy benson and catherine manuel ward managing editor for "reason" magazine. look, i'm all for a deal. i want a deal, i want to save the country, do all the right things. why should the republicans sign on to higher tax rates no spending in run and something that matt miller never would have done, democrats want to actually spend more in a bill that's supposed to be about fiscal restraint. why should the gop sign on to that? >> they shouldn't and they won't. this is silly, no the a serious proposal. this is a first proposal where they're going for the moon, republicans should counter saying here's our counter-proposal, let's repeal obama care, enact the ryan plan and have their wish list. >> was it geithner or liu, the chief of staff? you're shaking your head to that. jack lew, the chief of staff, did a hell of a job. i am told he is the new geithner, that's why he's key to these talks. judd gregg, a former insider, probably more about the b
. seeing a shift in tone in washington since the election. much more conciliatory tone on all sides here. i expect you'll see that on display tomorrow. the question is whether the fundamental stumbling blocks of democrats not wanting entitlement spending cuts and republicans not wants new tax revenues, whether those stumbling blocks can be finessed between now and the end of the year. >> many, many thanks. eamon javers, appreciate it. let's get first reaction from congress on the breaking news. welcome back to the show house gop chief deputy whip peter roskam from the great state of illinois. peter, great to see you as always. a lot of movement now. i want to ask you, do you think it's possible here, post-election, as the stock market literally hammers washington with the selloff? will democrats and republicans rise above partisan politics and get us something that can work? >> i think that there's a tremendous opportunity, larry, and here's why. speaker boehner, yesterday, gave a statement, a 10 or 12-minute statement and offed his sincere congratulations to president obama. and he said, l
. and that is there's been indecision and uncertainty in washington on our middle east policy, whether it's being tougher on benjamin netanyahu for defending israel than they've been on iran for not having nuclear weapons. whether it is the conflicting approaches to the middle east peace process, et cetera. so there's a vacuum that has to be filled. the u.s. has to step up and provide leadership. president morsi in cairo called mr. jabari, the terrorist who was killed, a martyr. the muslim brotherhood does have a close relationship with hamas. iran has given hundreds of millions of dollars to hamas in recent months. so the region is in turmoil. the u.s. should step up firm for our ally, make clear where we are, try to get turkey and egypt -- both of whom have been sympathetic to hamas -- to stand down. >> that's not happening. john, u.s. foreign policy in the middle east, maybe elsewhere, but in the middle east right now in the wake of libya and benghazi, we are at low ebb, john, in the eyes i dare say of middle eastern countries and in the eyes of european countries and maybe in the eyes of asia
>> the worst week in you want to point fingers? point them at washington. good evening, everyone, this is "the kudlow report." >> the president urged both sides of the aisle to get america's fiscal house before we fall off the cliff 52 days from now. what if they're arguing about the difference between tax loopholes and marginal tax rates. that's the debate. >> you mark my words. there's no way that the entire tax hike would be allowed to take place. no way. in terms of investment strategy, it is ridiculous that we'll be facing this. why all of the bickering when it equates to just one quarter of 1% of gdp. all right, supply side art mentor will join us to discuss. >>> also tonight, a shocker, david petraeus quits in disgrace or was he forced out just days before he was to testify in front of congress over the benghazi embassy terror attack. will we ever get the real answers? was the threat of blackmail behind this? >> we begin this evening with the president pushing congress to come together right now and solve the fiscal cliff mess. let's give peace a chance. >> cnbc's chief wa
, will they have to buy more? does the central bank see it self as a safety net position if congress and washington are as irresponsibilit irresponsibilityable as they are? >> i do not see us as that safety net. if we keep violating that, then we have bad policy. there is a limit. we have to discuss what that limit is. i haven't been in favor of that. i have lost that argument. but we can't continue down the road of infinite expansion of policy. he gives these guys the position of what not to do. it has been the great enableler. >> we have done our duty. inflation right now is under control and expectations are under control. i'm fully confident in arguing that. the second mandate larry is we need to create the conditions for full employment and that is where we get into a deep trap where we go on forever. if we do -- >> let me ask you today. vice chair janet young. one of the things that she said. she believes based on various computer models that the target rate should be early 2016, that is the longest out there. what do you make of that? early 2016. each of us has an opinion. she is speaking fo
to washington, d.c.? we've got two kissy huggy cnbc contributors. jared bernstein, former vice president, biden chief economist, and kissy huggy jim pethokoukis of the american enterprise institute. jimmy p., i love this new washington picture. and i don't want to be pessimistic. i want to be optimistic. maybe they can make a deal. but here's what i worry about, jimmy. here's what i fear. the republicans are conceding that they'll give a revenue -- a tax revenue portion by limiting deductions. but i don't see any spending cuts. the sequester has been called off. mr. boehner would like a down payment on entitlements. i don't see that happening. to me remember it used to be 3-1 or 4-1 spending cuts to revenue increases. right now it looks to me like it's 10-1. 10-0. $10 of revenue hikes and no spending cuts, jimmy pethokoukis. >> i think what we're going to get at the end of the day, you're going to get a lot of tax increases, and then you're going to get a lot of promises about caps and mechanisms. be careful of the word "process." there's going to be a process in place for looking at further sp
. if washington avoids the fiscal cliff, if, it sure looks like this could be a big-time buy opportunity. think about it. we are about to ask the money manager if he is thinking the same thing. later, president obama's going to make a public campaign to build support for his fiscal plan but what are those plans exactly? what is this public campaign? what's going on inside of his head. and don't forget, folks, i know sometimes it is discouraging. free market capital its silver medal the best path to prosperity ask i believe that it will prevail. just ask those oil drillers in north dakota. they have it right. "the kudlow report" is coming right back. >> going off the skifiscal christmas eve would be a disaster. >> time to rise above partisan politics. the more you know, the better you trade. so we have ongoing webinars and interactive learning, plus, in-branch seminars at over 500 locations, where our dedicated support teams help you know more so your money can do more.

that and really concentrate the mind of these dopes in washington. >> wasn't it bob ruben who said during the clinton years -- or james carville -- the same thing. look what happened, clinton cut the rate and you had a huge rally in stocks and bonds. the stork market may do the same thing here. >> if you want to root for a bullish stock market, maybe in the short term, let's get a deal going and then do tax reform and entitlement reform. meantime, i think stocks are warping these guys you're going to put us on the precipice of a recession, and that's bad for earnings and stocks. >> the fed has done the same thing. they've come out in recent weeks and said instead of just buying $45 billion of bonds every month, we may have to double that and extend it out further. >> richard fisher of the dallas fed told me last night they don't do that. actually, that's not fair. he said in his opinion they shouldn't do that. we don't know, you might right. mike of "forbes," thank you very much. >>> this is truly the video of the day. the israelis get their man. the military head of hamas taken down with
